This is a must see for anyone visiting Richmond. It's all about Patrick Henry's speech but the Church itself is beautiful and the re-enacting of the meeting that produced his "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech was awesome. It was like being there. The actors were convincing and I sat in George Washington's pew!

This is another church that has a cemetery surrounding that has some famous names buried there. How about Poe's mother? Check out the rest. There is a tour of the church with a small cost and you purchase tickets at the book store. This church is the location of the "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech by Patrick... More

My grandparents were married in this church. I have a beautiful color drawing of it in my living room.

We stopped by on our way back to our hotel which was 5 minutes away. We were able to get in the last guided tour at 3:30. We spent about 35 minutes in the church with our guide. She gave us a lot of information during this time and when we left my husband said he felt like he was... More

When we went in the organist was rehearsing for Sunday service the organ in this church is just fantastic. The stained class is timeless and there is so much history in this church. Don't miss out take the time to go see this.

The famous church isn't the reason to visit Richmond's East side- it's actually the 19th century neighborhood filled with brick row houses that are federal, greek revival and Italianate! Park the car and stroll the streets especially the St. John's chuch block and the 2600 block of Franklin street (for Greek revival at its best.) the houses are restored and... More

I was very fortunate to experience the reenactment of Patrick Henry's speech one glorious September Sunday, ironically with a cousin from the UK who had actually written about the Civil War in the US as part of her thesis. (I am also from England) We joked during the speech that all is forgiven! The church is still an active church... More

If you are a history buff, your time in Richmond should start at St. John's church, on "Church Hill", not just for what happened inside the church -(re-enactments of the Virginia convention on the eve of the Revolutionary War)- but also for the views of Church Hill, one of the best preserved and largely intact historic urban neighborhoods in the...

This is worth a visit to hear the re-enactment of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.
